some are fussy with the amount of sunlight. so i put it in semi-shade. i just use regular garden soil but i think the rest use better potting mixes - that would be much better.

Hi crazyjellie ,
soil -> sometimes i used potting mix, sometimes i used compost or garden soil, and sometimes mixed media (rice husk:compost:peat/dried bamboo leaves)
ferts -> I use slow release ferts
sun -> some are sun tolerant (could be planted in full sun), but commonly better in partial shade/shade.

For your case...
Um.. could be soil/root mealy bugs, water them too much/ the soil is not porous -> some part of the bulbs rot, or the tuber is facing its dormancy period (this's normal) -> making bigger bulbs, dormancy up to 2/3 months.

And for Thai cultivars, could be heat..they could get dormant quickly in more than 30 C. (Thai cultivars were bred exclusively for Thai royal household enjoyment not for horticultural market). So better plant them inside the AC (26-28 C) and you could try plant them inside transparent plastic bags (to create 100% humidity)..watch them grow inside the plastic (just like terrarium) this will encourage more leaves and vivid/vibrant color.

that's from me.

Hope this's help crazyjellie.. ^_^/>

Hi,
Just bought 2 pots of caladium from FEF this afternoon and planted them in a trough on my balcony. They will get strong morning sun for about 3 hours and sometimes strong wind. Rest of the time in shade. Do you think this growing condition should be OK? They are SOOO pretty and so begging for collection just like begonia leaves...

Teresa

actually, 'angel wings' is an alternative common name for all caladiums, rather than one cultivar...though i'm not super sure what i have is 'candidum'...it's the closest/commonest match i could find pattern/color wise... :)/>

hehe..your oddball looks great!

yup, pino really got the poison flowing...i was gonna 'store power' wait til my thai babies grow out, then unleash... :D/>

anyway, if anyone happen to see nice thai hybrids/minis in any nursery, do tell me....i'm looking to expand my collection further..but caladiums are a very 'old school' plant, not many nurseries carry a fantastic variety of nice ones..

may i ask something abt caladium and soil mealies. ytd at pioneer there were 2 pots of white caladium with green border. but on removing the rootball, i can see heavy soil mealy infestation.

i would like to know, assuming the caladium is uncommon type and also cheap to buy, how feasible it is to wash off the soil from its roots totally and repot in fresh compost. are caladium root system hardy enough to tolerate strong pesticide treatment or rough handling in washing off the soil? and after repotting do they bounce back very quickly?
